World Prematurity Day was on 17th November and to raise awareness of this, the team at Price Bailey dressed top to toe in purple. Whilst doing this, they also managed to raise £250 for children’s research charity, Action Medical Research.
The money raised will go towards Action Medical Research’s ‘Saving Tiny Lives’ campaign which is focussed on funding research and developing treatments into premature birth and other pregnancy complications. According to Action Medical Research, around 60,000 babies are born prematurely in the UK, and sadly 1,000 tragically die making it the most significant cause of death in babies; for those that do survive, it’s also the leading cause of disability.
James King, Corporate Social Responsibility Partner at Price Bailey said: “This is the latest in a fundraising effort by Price Bailey which has seen employees of the firm raise over £80,000 for Action Medical Research. The research that we help Action to fund for their ‘Saving Tiny Lives’ campaign is valuable in improving the futures of premature babies and is a very worthy cause.”
